Impact Wrestling is trying to remain present in the modern wrestling world. Everything seems to be moving at an incredible speed around them while the former TNA can’t even get Pursuit Channel to air the correct episode of their show. Just a few weeks ago the channel didn’t come back from commercial break for the last 25 minutes of the show so the main event wasn’t aired.
These issues with Impact Wrestling aren’t just on the production side either. Because they are dealing with some big competition elsewhere. AEW is now a viable option and it appears that they have claimed Pentagon Jr and Fenix.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that both Lucha Brothers appear to be done with Impact Wrestling. Not only have they been moved over to the company’s alumni page, but they also didn’t take part in the recent set of television tapings.
They are still under Lucha Underground contracts, but there is a huge doubt whether LU will come back for another season. They liquidated their online store and are said to be in limbo in regards to another season taking place.
I think it’s inevitable once (if) they get a Lucha Underground release that they will sign with AEW at least for the U.S. market and retain rights to work AAA and Mexican indies
We will have to wait and see where the Lucha Brothers end up next, but odds are they will wind up in AEW sooner than later. However, they will also still likely be able to continue working in Mexico as they have been which falls in line with other unique AEW deals where performers are still allowed to pursue other opportunities outside the company.
